GS Dakar 2004 model injected

Bought my BMW F650GS in September 2010 with miles on the clock after a time researching adventure The final choice was between the Transalp 650cc or the BMW 650 Dakar.

on the Dakar as was a taller and in my opinion a looking bike which with ABS brakes as standard,

So two months of ownership and approx mile later I can now comment on the and dislikes of the bike,

Had many problems with the starting from cold, The revs would race to rpm for a few seconds on start up and the exhaust pipe would also red hot when idling from

This bike has no manual as it’s Fuel injected, I had to out a re-set to the engine control every few days to stop from happening, This disconnecting the engine computer main wiring plug for a few After connecting the plug on you start the bike up and leave the idling without touching the until the cooling fan came on.

After a Month of this I for my local BMW Bike dealer to the bike over and they various stored fault in engine control unit, the were cleared and bike OK so far,

The engines which are made by an company called Rotax for BMW are unrefined at idle and up to 4000rpm, rattle like mad from This is not a fault as I have told they can sound Tractors with marbles as explained to me by a BMW Forum I have Also you must not ride bikes below 3000 rpm as an over square engine, can take some getting too,

The Gear selection into gear with the bike is very clunky, Again is normal on this type of and many other different of BMW Bikes,

BMW 6-Series

If you can live with the Gear selection, Rattling the engine, Keeping the engine above 3000rpm, The temperamental injection system and having no gauge but a warning light the fuel level is very low you WILL LOVE THIS

The Power delivery / torque and from this single bike is great, you cannot the way the engine responds between

The Long Suspension travel has no with any bad road surface still remaining comfortable at the time; I was very impressed this, Also another feature is the heated hand with two heat settings really work well,

The riding position where you can see over the cars roofs you to plan well ahead,

Even with the bikes I am still pleased with my and yes I would recommend this but take a test ride
